About Sea View Retreat

Sea View Retreat is a newly refurbished self-catering apartment in the coastal village of Lydd-on-Sea. It's perfect for couples or individual travellers who want uninterrupted sea views, lots of space, and direct access to beautiful walks. There is a pub, the Pilot Inn, within walking distance and guests are also close to an excellent fish shack selling the freshest catch of the day. Sea View Retreat is pet friendly and available for holidays all year round.

Lydd-on-Sea is between Dungeness and Greatstone in an area that's well known for its natural coastal landscape. The beach is part of the Dungeness National Nature Reserve which is the oldest RSPB reserve in England. It's a strange and unique beauty here, with miles of shingle and marsh that provide a haven for different species of insects and plants as well as migrating birds. Depending on the time of the year, you could expect to see swallows, martins, wheaters, lapwings, redshanks and possibly even a marsh harrier. It's easy to see why this landscape has inspired the creativity of artists and writers like Derek Jarman.

While you're at Sea View Retreat you can take day trips to Rye and Tenterden, both of which are only a short drive away, go shopping in Ashford, climb to the top of Dungeness Lighthouse where the 169-steps will leave you as breathless as the panoramic views across the English Channel towards France. The beach at Lydd-on-Sea is shingle but if you can't imagine a seaside holiday without at least one sandcastle then you only need to go as far as Greatstone or Camber Sands, both of which are popular for kitesurfing and paddle boarding. There's a golf course within a mile of the cottage, and you can hire bikes in both Romney and Camber to help you explore even further.

Sea View Retreat is next to the owner's home. While they are on hand to greet you and answer any questions, the property is entirely private and self-contained.
